Virgil Delgado, who drove 12 hours from San Jose, Calif., is taken aback as a Seahawks fan reaches out, grabs his flag and then drives off with it, ripping it off the pole. On the day before the big divisional championship game between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, hundreds of 49ers faithfuls attended the "Quest for Six" rally at the corner of Washington Street and 1st Avenue in Seattle Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014.

On the day before the big game between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, hundreds of 49ers faithfuls attended the "Quest for Six" rally and started mocking Seahawks fans who drove by. As both sides mocked each other, 49ers fans began running into the streets, surrounding moving cars, causing a hold up in traffic along 1st Avenue South.
